Nonet: Pink shoes

wrapped in tissues, the gleaming pink shoes
peer sleepily from the old box
dreaming of hot tango nights
waiting, ever youthful
seductive, lifting
hips, tempting me
go back, dance  
one more
time



Author's Note:   This post is for d'Verse Poets:   Poetics - on your feet.  I have used a poetry form - nonet (9 lines) for this prompt about shoes.  I am really happy with experimenting with different forms, and I hope you guys try out other (shoes) poetry forms.   It is challenging but fun~

Happy dancing day ~

  17. I am enjoying your nonets. I really like "Shoes." You did a great job. BTW...Those shoes are wonderful, I'd love to put them on and go dancing.

    As you said "Happy Dancing Day" so I will dance NOW--barefooted though-- to Funkagenda's Drift. Google it, you'll be dancing I promise.

    I love the shape of this poem - a feminine form which perfectly falls into the character of your blog.

    It gives a strong impression of who you are and what you are feeling- expressive and intresting.

    Anything that reminds me of a lady i once danced the tango with is a winner...

  26. They're hot to look at, but I don't know how you could dance in those things!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So fun but if I put those things on I'd be flat on my face!

  28. Shoes like that are for sitting only-I couldn't imagine dancing in them.

    They are beautifully sexy though and are calling to you... Love your nonet.

  29. This is great ... I recently learned of the nonet ... I appreciate viewing an example that I can relate! Thank you for sharing!

  30. Killer shoes.
    This is one time centering a poem is a plus. Really gives the "seductive" line umph.

  31. Thanks everyone for the lovely comments.

    In my younger days, I could dance in those shoes. Not now, I prefer dancing barefoot. But shoes like that pink killer shoes, hold a meaning to a woman. Men might not understand it- shoes are just different for women.
